Meissen Tea Pot With Matching Cups and Saucers

Germanic States/Dresden 2nd Half 18th Century

A sweet little set for two made in the Meissen factory. There is a slight variation in the marks, two of them with letters in addition to the crossed swords. The iron red painting is so fine that some of it must have been done with a single hair brush. The saucers are 5 1/4″ diam. and the tea bowls are 3″ diam.

Price

$1,400

Condition

Overall very good condition. There is some rubbing of the iron red in the center of the saucers. The tea bowls have miniscule chips on the foot rim. There are several small chips to the rims and one at the tip of the pot handle which have been professionally repaired. One tea bowl has two nearly invisible hair lines issuing from a repaired chip. Scattered light scratches.

Luminous Landscape Attributed to American Charles Codman

A lovely sunset landscape attributed to Portland, Maine artist Charles Codman (b. 1800, d.1842). Codman’s work is represented in several US museums (see artist biography section on my gallery home page) and most recently the Portland Museum of art mounted a retrospective in 2003 of Codman’s work which is described on their web site.
